NAME

HTML::DOM::Element::Input - A Perl class for representing ’input’ elements in an HTML DOM tree

CONTENTS

VERSION

Version 0.054

SYNOPSIS



  use HTML::DOM;
  $doc = HTML::DOM->new;
  $elem = $doc->createElement(input);
  $elem->setAttribute(type => text);

  $elem->click();
  $elem->blur();
  # etc.

  $elem->checked(1) # set attribute
  $elem->type;      # get attribute
  $elem->tagName;
  # etc.



DESCRIPTION

This class implements ’input’ elements in an HTML::DOM tree. It implements the HTMLInputElement DOM interface and inherits from HTML::DOM::Element (q.v.).

METHODS

In addition to those inherited from HTML::DOM::Element and its superclasses, this class implements the following DOM methods:
defaultValue
defaultChecked
accept
accessKey
align
alt
disabled
maxLength
name
readOnly
size
src
tabIndex
type
useMap Each of these returns the corresponding HTML attribute (the ’value’ and ’checked’ attributes in the case of defaultValue and defaultChecked, respectively). If you pass an argument, it will become the new value of the attribute, and the old value will be returned.
form Returns the form containing this input element.
checked
value These methods allow one to change the state of the input field. The change is not reflected in the HTML attributes. These will be called with the values of defaultValue and defaultChecked when the form’s reset method is invoked.

The value method behaves differently if the calling package is HTML::Form, HTML::Form::Input or WWW::Mechanize. For checkboxes, the return value will be undef if the box is not checked. With an undef argument the box will be unchecked. If an argument is given that is the same as the ’value’ attribute, the box will be checked. If any other argument is passed, it will die. If the ’type’ attribute is ’button’ or ’reset,’ value will simply return.

blur
focus
select
click Each of these triggers the corresponding event. The click method can take three arguments, all optional: (0) the form, (1) the x-coordinate where the mouse supposedly clicked and (2) the y-coordinate.
In addition, the following methods are provided for compatibility with WWW::Mechanize:
possible_values This returns an empty list for most input elements, but for checkboxes it returns (undef, $value).
form_name_value Returns a list of two items: (0) the name of the field and (1) the value.
file An alias for value
filename This get/sets the filename reported to the server during file upload. This attribute defaults to the value reported by the file() method.
headers Returns an empty list (for now).
content This get/sets the file content provided to the server during file upload. This method can be used if you do not want the content to be read from an actual file.
